Annual Open and Close Steam Boiler Inspection: Boiling Point Series

Posted by Ritchie Ware on Mar 30, 2015 10:31:05 AM

Boiling Point SeriesOn today's Boiling Point, Ritchie and Daniel Ware discuss what is involved in an annual open and close steam boiler inspection. Boiler inspections are crucial to maintaining fuel efficient equipment. 

Here are a few key takeaways from this video:

1. How often should high and low pressure systems be inspected?

  • High pressure systems (150 pounds or more) should be inspected annually. Fifty-pound systems should be inspected every two years.

2. What should you look for on the fire and water side during a boiler inspection?

  • Inspectors should keep an eye out for scale or soot build up and cracks in refractory door. Too much scale or soot build up can result in fuel inefficiencies.

3. What should you have prepared prior to inspection?

  • Prior to the onsite inspection, remove everything on the fire and water side including caps, crosses, and McDonnell Miller Head to inspect water column and look through control line to be sure there is no scale build up.

4. What do you do to your system after inspection?

  • After a clean bill from inspection, put all new gaskets on the fire and water sides, replace caps, crosses and the McDonnell Miller heads, button up the boiler and fill it up. To complete the inspection, you should run a test fire to analyze combustion levels for proper combustion.

Check out the rest of the video for an in-depth look at annual open and close boiler inspections.
